Physical Modeling of Mechanical Systems with SimMechanics

Note: A 1 hour test session will be scheduled one day prior to the first day of class. This session is to verify that the visual and audio connection is working properly on your computer. The required product software should be installed for the test session. It is highly recommended that you attend this session to ensure a successful and timely class start.

This one-day course focuses on how to model rigid-body mechanical systems in the Simulink® environment using SimMechanics. Topics include:

  • Modeling simple multibody systems
  • Creating custom geometries and compound bodies
  • Creating reusable models of mechanical systems
  • Assembling, guiding, and verifying mechanisms
  • Importing models from CAD software
  • Combining Simulink, Simscape, and SimMechanics blocks
